Steve was born in Brooklyn and raised Jewish. In his late teens he moved to Israel and lived in a kibbutz. He would pray to God begging him to reveal himself to him. After six years he return home disappointed. After dabbling in eastern religions he gave up hope in anything. After reconciling with his own father he was led by God to seek out a Catholic Church and be baptized. When he was baptized the peace and love he’d always been seeking filled him.
